The New gTLDs are here whether you like it or not
As we mentioned in a previous post, over one thousand new gTLDs are in the process of being launched during this year and 2015. The yearly fees for registration of these new extensions start at two times the cost of registering a Dot Com domain extension or higher.
In addition if you want to pre-register a new gTLD you can do it now, but in most cases if there’s more than one bidder for the name of your choice you will be taken to a private auction between all the bidders, it’s not a first come first served pre-reg. So you may end up paying more than what you expected for the registration and sometimes it’s not clear how much will you have to pay for renewals of this “premium-wannabe” name.
